Good service if they don't have too many customers at the same time.

Very good and diverse meals and good prices but, you will have to be petient if you come in the peack hours, The music is assorted and in low tone for a good talking.

It was closed the day we went but we still got a tour. It was interesting to hear about their banana production and how is cared for.

The restaurant is being moved to a new location not far from the original spot. But....for those of you that can't live without McDonald's lucky you! the world famous burger and fries will be opening for business as soon as construction is finished.
